## anonymous one year ago A distance of one centimeter is the same as A~100 m B~ 10 m C~ .01 m D~1000 m

This is what you have to remember... to convert to the base Length unit m $\frac{ 10^{-2} ~m}{ 1~cm }$

= 1

A Centi-meter is 2 orders of magnitude smaller than a meter.. 10^-2 $\frac{ 1~cm }{ 1 }*\frac{ 10^{-2}~m }{ 1~cm } = \frac{ 10^{-2} ~m }{ 1 }$

If you have to convert units, first go to the base unit, then convert to the one you want, at least that is the way i do it (least to memorize)... good luck
